2005 Jeep Liberty CRDAuburn Hills, MI - For motorists who desire top-of-the-line communication systems, the 2005 Jeep® Liberty has the equipment to fit the bill. Simple-to-use and hassle-free technological advancements in vehicle entertainment add to the driving experience of the 2005 Jeep Liberty.

“The Chrysler Group’s vehicle communications strategy places an emphasis on creating a safe driving environment through practical innovations, while enabling customers to choose the services they want,” said Jack Withrow, Director, Vehicle Entertainment Communications. “It’s all about simplicity, safety, freedom and flexibility.”

The RB1 factory-installed Navigation Radio system is housed in the center of the Jeep Liberty dashboard, which allows for easy access for both the driver and passenger. The 4.2-inch full-color display features AM/FM stereo, CD player and navigation system in one unit. Utilizing voice commands, the system guides the user through the drive route, mile-by-mile, turn-by-turn until the final destination is reached. Destinations can be entered into the system eight different ways and the screen can be viewed as a detailed map or enlarged to be viewed turn-by-turn. When coupled with SIRIUS™ Satellite Radio, the stream listing, stream category, song title and artist can be viewed on the system’s display screen.

The RB1 Navigation Radio was offered as a Mopar® dealer-installed option on 2004 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles. The first factory-installed option was available on the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2005 Chrysler 300. Factory-installation cost varies from $1,200 to $1,500, based on equipment package and content. Pricing for the dealer-installed version of the RB1 Navigation Radio is $1,595 (suggested retail price) plus labor.

Chrysler Group selected Alpine Electronics, a supplier of high-performance mobile electronics systems, to provide the navigation unit, GPS antenna and map database information. The map database information is housed on a single DVD-ROM based on NAVTECH data.

The UConnect hands-free communication system uses Bluetooth® technology to provide wireless communication between a customer’s compatible cellular telephone and the vehicle’s on-board receiver. Bluetooth is a short-range wireless networking technology that connects two or more devices together. As the number of drivers using cell phones increases, hands-free, voice-activated options are a way to connect a driver to a cell phone call more safely. The Chrysler Group was the first North American automaker to offer its customers a Bluetooth-enabled automotive dealer-installed application last year.

The factory-installed version allows the audio to be heard through the vehicle’s radio speakers. A control pad and microphone are housed in the vehicle’s rear view mirror serving as the driver interface. UConnect factory installation is $275 and available on the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee as well as many other 2005 Chrysler Group products.
